I grew up in Fridley, MN and went to Totino Grace high school. I now live in Chanhassen with my husband Thomas and adorable gym dog Sully. Outside of Crossfit, I’m down to do anything active – hiking, biking, rock climbing, you name it! I also enjoy reading, board games, and anything that involves hanging out with good people.
I dabbled in all the sports growing up (soccer, volleyball, dance, softball, track and field), but volleyball was my true obsession. I went on to play in college at Concordia University-St. Paul where we won four NCAA DII championships.
After college I did the globo gym thing for a couple years, but after spending my whole life working out in a team environment, I found I didn’t have the same motivation to workout by myself. I finally decided I had gotten too out of shape and needed to find a solution, so I googled “places to work out near me”. Crossfit SISU and OrangeTheory were the two options I got, and since treadmill running is not my fave, I decided to give Crossfit a try – by far the best googling I’ve done!
Why I Coach
I love coaching because I feel like it’s an opportunity for me to “spread the love” and take something that I enjoy and makes me happy and help turn it into the same for someone else. It’s so awesome to see the transition as people who are uneasy to start working out become fully obsessed to where coming to the gym becomes a favorite part of their day!
